The year of Canada’s 150th anniversary is the year of our first gay travels to the biggest North American country. Our first trip to Canada brought us to Alberta, the western Canadian province famous for the Canadian Rocky Mountains, incredibly beautiful nature, the world-famous scenic Icefields Parkway and its amazing food scene. But also for the well-known cities Edmonton, Calgary, Banff and, of course, Jasper. The goal of our 14-days Road Trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains in March was Jasper, a small mountain town famous for its annually Jasper Pride Festival with a gay pride parade on the hills of the ski resort Marmot Basin.
CANADA: Exploring the Canadian Rocky Mountains around Banff and Lake Louise, there is one thing you seriously have to put on your gay travel bucket list: a visit and stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, the “Castle in the Rockies” at Banff National Park.
